The “18” in 18K white gold refers to the percentage of an alloy that is actually gold—in this case 75 percent of pure gold, which is referred to as 24K gold. Pure gold is too soft to be used in fine jewelry, but the addition of others metals gives it the strength it needs to be formed into jewelry that’s beautiful and that’s poised to last a lifetime.
Although 14K gold is the most common type of gold used in jewelry in the United States, jewelry made from 18K gold is quite popular in many areas of the world for its luxury and its beauty. Many in India and the Middle East wear 18K gold as their metal of choice, and it’s been embraced in many European countries for years. Whether it’s worn as a symbol of prosperity or simply as a beautiful adornment, 18K gold has a look and feel that never fails to be sought after.
